Peter Dinklage in Talks for Adam Sandler’s Alien Comedy Pixels

Actor Peter Dinklage (L) and Erica Schmidt attend HBO's Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Post Award Reception at The Plaza at the Pacific Design Center on September 22, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.

No one should presume to know the mind of Rob Schneider, but he'll probably be at least a little bummed that Peter Dinklage is in talks to join Adam Sandler's video game alien comedy Pixels. The Game of Thrones actor will fight extraterrestrials alongside Sandler, Josh Gad, and Kevin James as "a former Donkey Kong and Space Invaders champion who is a loudmouth." Dear god, imagine being cast in a film alongside Adam Sandler, Josh Gad, and Kevin James and your character is the loudmouth. Peter Dinklage needs to take out an insurance policy on his vocal chords, because they are about to be torn completely asunder.
